Sassy songstress Nadia Mukami has finally dropped her new banger titled Kolo. The song which features RnB singer Otile Brown is her 14th studio single and the 1st track off her upcoming album. Dropped today after a lot of anticipation from fans, Kolo was already trending at number 2 on Twitter an hour after its release.
Produced by respected producer Vicky Pon Dis, Kolo is an Afro-pop that has Bongo and Kenyan Coast Music elements. The beat of this love song is a classic and provides an ample base for Nadia and Otile’s impressive vocals. Kolo draws inspiration from the legendary 90s Kenyan band, Them Mushrooms.
Both singers flaunt their vocal capabilities and Nadia perfectly nails the hook making it very catchy. The lyrics which were written by Nadia and Otile ooze metaphors, celebrate the Swahili language and showcase the singers’ impressive rhyming and songwriting skills.
Kolo’s colorful visuals were directed by popular video director Hanscana and further enhance the message of the song. The highlight of the music video, however, has to be Nadia and Otile’s eclectic sense of style and the beautiful African dances by both the male and female vixens.
Nadia has been on a steady rise since her debut single ‘Kesi’ and has continued to gain fans from Kenya and beyond. Her star quality is very rare and she has won a number of awards. Currently, she has an MTV Base 2021 nomination for the Fanbase Category.
This song is an authentic production that deserves a slot in your playlist. Its positive vibes make it a good choice for a happy event. Wait…It could also be a perfect dedication to your Valentine date this year.
